Stay and Play at these Top 15 RV Beach Camping Resorts
If you don’t mind a little bit of sand on the floor of your rig, then you are going to love these 15 beachside RV parks. Scattered around the U.S., these parks are either right next to a sandy beach or smack dab in the middle of them.
While many of these beaches are located in sunny Florida, you’ll still find some in other waterside spots such as Oregon and even New York. Make some room in the rig, it’s time to pack the towels and flip flops. To get up-to-date information and reviews on these and other RV parks, visit RV LIFE Campgrounds.com.
